Ruh Roe (versus Wade,) you've caught me. You're exactly right. As a women myself, my true intentions are to oppress women by telling them killing their children is wrong. Wow. I was wondering when someone was gonna catch on to that.
Did any of you see the horrible story on the news today? There were thousands of women who died in a back alley last week. Oh wait, I didn't see that story, either, because you're full of it. I did see the story about 55 million babies (or fetuses, that's just for you, Elise) being killed.
I hate that there are children who are poor, have deadbeat parents, have a disability that makes them feel "different," but here's the really crazy part, I've never looked at any of them, and thought to myself, "wow, you don't deserve to be here!"
Sorry that you do, but I don't. I think that means I have a heart, or something like that.
And let's stop with the "words" used to beat around the bush (this bush has been beat to death as it is). I am also against abusing children, therefore I do not do that, but I would NOT stand there and do nothing if I saw another person doing it. Dang having it heart. It makes me care for others. You're lucky. Worrying about others takes a lot of energy.
Gee, Sassy, did they ban you AGAIN?

Anyway, get on top of googling those AVP's. Warning: The "thump thump" sensation you may feel in your chest is called---a heart. I know, I'm smart like that.

There is a difference between the noun LIVING and the verb LIVING. Perhaps your brainwashed mind might take that into consideration when learning which description applies to the embryo/fetus.
Btw---I understand you prefer the term "fetus," instead of baby, & that's fine with me. Fetus is Latin for "offspring," and offspring is (drum rolllllll, please) baby.
Speaking of embryo/fetus and your brainwashed mind, why don't you take into consideration your associative belief that fetus = baby = offspring just might be inaccurate?

<quoted text>Not to put too fine a point on it, but if a person's passion is to end abortion, criminalizing the procedure is useless. Finger wagging and slut-shaming is useless. And restricting it to the point where it's nearly impossible to obtain one safely, in a sterile environment, by qualified personnel, is so short-sighted as to be effectively blind.
Abortion isn't going anywhere until the CAUSES of abortion are eradicated.
(Well, if you have your way, it will go underground, and become the sole province, once again, of the hacks, quacks, and butchers who proliferated in the days between 1889 and 1973....) but that's not 'eradicating abortion'.
Is it.
No, you and I both know that 'ending abortion' is not your passion. Your passion lies in obliging every woman to fit your definition of 'moral', regardless of the consequences to women who get pregnant and don't want children....or more children....or horribly compromised children....or poverty-stricken children....or anything other than sex.
If you REALLY wanted to eradicate abortion, you'd be standing on street corners advocating free and available CONTRACEPTION. You'd be tirelessly working to see that children aren't born into poverty. You'd be making damn sure that women were educated well enough to SUPPORT the children they bear, even if the men fathering those children disappear - and you'd be banging down the walls of every courthouse to make sure there was no such thing as a deadbeat dad, with as much vigor as you go after women who make reproductive choices of which you don't approve.
But you're not doing even ONE of those vitally important things....you're sitting here, whinging about strangers making reproductive decisions which have NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU, regardless of her eventual decision.
It's not abortion you're worried about - it's the fact that you don't get to tell others what to do with our bodies.
Get the hell over it, and worry about your own.

Since we stopped speaking Latin centuries ago, the only meaningful definition is the modern medical one, which specifically refers to a stage of development of oviparous mammals while gestating inside the female.

You missed? the point. Err, pointS. Yeah, you ignored alluvem.

Look, no matter how you want to frame it, pregnant women's civil rights are central to this discussion.

You can scream and shout "Don't have sex! Don't have sex if you don't want to be pregnant!", but you know that tactic has never worked in all of human history. So, maybe, just maybe, you should consider the suggestions NAP outlined for you.

I never once said that. I know that isn't possible. I know that isn't the solution. I also know that I didn't read much of yours, either, because again, killing is wrong. It's barbaric. Most of you do not actually care about women, or their reproductive "rights". That's why you fight against restrictions that would make clinics safer. That's why you don't care that so many women have been physically and emotionally scarred from it.

No reasonable person is against abortion for a Medical reason under the care of a Physician in a Licensed Medical Hospital.
Adoption is the answer for unwanted children. There are millions of people out there that would love to adopt the Child.
Abortion for Birth Control is nothing short of legalized murder. This baby the mother is choosing to murder is living inside of her body. It is not the mother's body it is the Child's body and deserves a chance at life.
Some day the laws will change because people will wake up to the truth about what is going on in the Abortion Mills of America. Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills make big huge $$$$ off the practice and they ain't about to give up the Cash without a fight. And the abortionists do not give a rats a$$ about the mother or her baby.
Other people's children are not commodities for sale to the infertile. Forced adoption is no different than forced abortion. Civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy mean one person at a time makes a decision to accept or reject a medical condition or medical procedure. None of your fluffy words changes this.

Until the newborn is outside the womb, he/she has no civil rights established. Just like the rest of us living in this country. Would you prefer to live in another country without civil rights? Where the gov't chooses for you? Forces you to abort or adopt out against your will?

Didn't think so. So stop wanting it for other American women.

At the end, forcing pregnant women to deny their civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy -- to accept/reject a medical condition or procedure -- is what's gross. Selfish. Disrespectful. Ludicrous.

You can lie to yourself and think "nobody cares!". Or you can learn some facts. There's nothing proving women are physically and emotionally scarred from terminating unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies.

What is proven are the circumstances surrounding the decision to terminate unhealthy/unwanted pregnancy. And/or an unresolved psychological condition in that same time frame.

As NAP has recently said, deal with those issues -- poverty, free birth control, free daycare, etc., and this country might actually see the annual number of induced abortion continue to go down. You do know the annual number of abortions has been steadily dropping several years now, right? Even before all those ridiculous unreasonable restrictions were put into place. Thank goodness some courts are finding those restriction unconstitutional.

I get it fine. You don't approve of abortion, but you approve of forced gestation. You don't approve of women killing our children, but when God does it, that's fine. You're heartily in favor of obliging the fertile to gestate for the benefit of the inferts, too. And you don't approve of me.
